Summary
After surviving a shooting at her high school, Linnea is packed off to live with her estranged father, Art, who doesn't quite understand how he has suddenly become responsible for raising a sullen adolescent girl. Art's neighbor, Christie, is a nurse distracted by an eccentric patient, Mrs. Foster, who has given Christie the reins to her Humanity Project, a bizarre and well-endowed charity fund. Just as mysteriously, no one seems to know where Conner, the Fosters' handyman, goes after work, but he has become the one person Linnea can confide in, perhaps because his own home life is a war zone: his father has suffered an injury and become addicted to painkillers
Summary
Relocated to the home of her resentful estranged father after surviving a high-school shooting, Linnea is unwittingly placed in charge of a bizarre and well-endowed charity fund and confides in a handyman, who is shouldering his own struggles with a painkiller-addicted parent
